Luzerne County Officials Warn of 911 Scam

The Luzerne County Communications Center is warning residents about an ongoing phone scam.

Officials said someone has changed his or her caller ID to display “911” and is prank calling and harassing people. Some people have reported getting calls telling them a family member will go to jail if they do not send money.

If you get one of these prank calls, you should report it to your local police department.
